A 2017 Calvin Harris Album Seems Imminent According to These Tweets
As with each prior year, 2016 was a year of career furthering musical achievement for Scottish DJ/producer, Calvin Harris.
The September 2016 release of Harris’s single, “My Way,”—a track whose lyrics were rumored to concern Harris’s ex girlfriend, Taylor Swift—ranked high on the UK Singles and Billboard Hot 100 charts, as Harris earned various nominations for the iHeartRadio Music Awards’s 2017 edition, including “Dance Artist of the Year,” and “Best Music Video” for “This is What You Came For.”
Given Harris’s propensity to steadily smash charts and collect certifications with each new release, the “Summer” DJ’s new music is always highly anticipated. News about exclusive Calvin Harris music in 2017 is, after all, what you came for.
For those hooked on Harris’s sophisticated electro house style, a new Harris single—or ten—might not be far off. In a Q&A Twitter session with fans, Harris fielded a variety of inquiries, most of which were centered around the DJ’s musical itinerary for 2017. Harris confirmed that he would indeed be dropping new music in 2017, ten new tracks, to be specific.
Ten is a considerable amount of songs to be expected from Harris, a number far too large for each track to materialize as a “single.” The number supplied by Harris suggests that the DJ is preparing to release another EP this year, a work that would follow his 2014 EP, “Motion.” With three years in between now and Harris’s last EP, it certainly is time for Harris to release a new studio album, one that can surely be predicted to secure nominations for various awards across the board for 2018, considering Harris’s consistency.
2017 is already shaping up to be a big year in EDM, with new releases from The Chainsmokers, and Oliver Heldens already out, and releases from Eric Prydz and Major Lazer among other prominent DJs pending. Yet as all dance music enthusiasts and DJs/producers alike could agree, a new Calvin Harris album would undoubtedly govern the landscape of the 2017 dance music scene.
